Looks like the floodgates are opening. There's a line forming in the Church confessional, but before folks get too comfortable in the pew think I'll dust off some Crippens...

WINNIPEG COLLECTION
Sold in a few different lots this Marvel collection that spans the 1960s to Copper Age. A large portion were brought to market by Showcase New England during the late 1990s. Known for having the owner's name written on the top of the cover of the pre-1965 issues, there are many high quality examples of this pedigree, and there have been rumblings that these may just be the under copies of the original owner's collection!

WHITE MOUNTAIN COLLECTION
Sold in pieces as early 1984 this collection came to prominence at Sotheby's comic auctions in the early 1990s. The collection consists of full runs of 1950s (mostly horror and science fiction) and early Silver Age comics that are known for their high grade condition and stunning white page quality due to being stored ina cool, dry environment. Later issues are often identified by pen markings near issue number as well as date stamp or date written on 1st page.

NORTHLAND COLLECTION
Known as one of the nicer Silver Age pedigrees due to it's high grades and full runs of titles. The collection came through Motor City Comics in the mid-90's from a gentleman who brought books to them in batches when he needed the money. The collection contained DC, Marvel, Dell, Gold Key, Charlton and there are duplicates of many issues in this pedigree as well.

@CatmanAmerica has already shown some 'D' copies

from the My Slabbed Comics site

*****

DAVIS CRIPPEN 'D' COPY PEDIGREE
Numbering 13,000 comic books the Crippen "D" pedigree comes in second only to the Edgar Church/Mile High pedigree for scope of Golden Age collections. Though it lacks many key issues that the Edgar Church/Mile High pedigree has, the Crippen "D" collection holds it's own with it's complete runs of most publishers and genres from 1940-1955. The collection surfaced in two parts. The first batch of approx 2000 comic books appeared in 1991, and may have been stolen from the Crippen residence. The balance of the collection was sold upon the owner Davis Crippens' death 15 years later. The collection is also known for it's quality though there are some foxing/moistures issues that affected many of the books after being moved to an unprotected garage later in Crippen's life.

******

I have examples, though they are yet to be slabbed. A search of Heritage Auctions post sale records can verify these books as from the collection.

PENNSYLVANIA PEDIGREE
In 1981, while Steve Geppi was building his comic empire, one of his store managers uncovered a lead to a comic collection near Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The broker, named Birney, took him to an elderly lady's home where stacks of Golden Age comics were piled throughout a room. The room also happened to contain several children running around, carelessly bumping into the stacks. Steve actually witnessed the Detective #38 and All-Star #8 sustain damage by the kids.

There were about 1,000 comics in the collection, primarily from the 1941-1944 period, and contained mostly superhero comics from just about every company publishing at the time. With a median grade near VF/NM 9.0, the Pennsylvania collection ranks in the top 25%. The bulk of the books have resided in Steve Geppi and Bob Overstreet's personal collections for over a decade before they began leaking into the market.

A few years later Steve learned that there were more books in the collection, possibly held back from the original purchase. Steve bought these as well, using the entire collection as a stepping stone to build Diamond into the #1 distribution company for comics nationwide. And the store manager who uncovered the lead? None other than Al Stoltz, owner of Basement comics and co-owner of the Lost Valley Pedigree.
